Almost everyday we read about the alarming rise of diabetes in our country, and the rest of the world. In fact, it’s hard to find any family who aren’t affected by this disease so it’s time we all wake up and do something!
Every year on November 14, the International Diabetes Foundation and WHO celebrate World Diabetes Day as an effort to address issues revolving the diabetes community, as well as to spread much needed awareness. Fun fact: November 14 is also the birthday of Frederick Banting, who co-conceived the idea behind insulin in 1922!
